I recently got a chance to assign my own themes in the WordPress Theme Trac in order to review submitted themes. I am beyond elated and feel a little honored at the same time. Some people may not understand what that means to me but I’m not too worried about that.
What this means to me is that I can now go in and review newly submitted themes and give feedback to the developer about the status of their theme. Approved or not. Sounds a little simple but there is more to it. I look over the implementation of both functionality and presentation of content.
The nice thing is that I am learning more and more about how WordPress works and feel even more confident about my coding skills to the point where I may just try to apply for an entry level web developer job or support staff job at Automattic.com since they have a happiness engineer job have been eyeing for some time now.
To top things off I have been in a better mood more and more these past few weeks. A lot of it is knowing that I can make a difference and actually seeing it. Motivation has been pretty clear in not only my everyday life but a bit more at work. I know, slightly branching off but it is on my mind. Always will be no matter what job I do.
WordPress has slowly become my learning annex and I love it. I have learned a lot since I first began looking at the code and working with Theme Development. This coming year will be full of good things and I can feel it.
